I am wondering if this is just area specific. I live in Southern California, in a very populated area. There are 3 Spirits within a 5 mile range of me and about 5 more in less than a 15-20 mile range. My Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, Costco, Sams club and all the other stores (multiple of each in close range) are all full of in door and out door decorations. I have not noticed any type of decline around me. I am in a busy area and I am neighboring several busy citites so maybe that has something to do with it.
